Packed to the Rafters
We think it is fair to say we are overbooking ourselves on Thursday nights. As I headed out the door yesterday, patrons, presenters, and vendors were all either setting or packing up for the evening's events. The main floor was a-
hoppin' and noisy (in a good way) as knitters convened, young adults set down their devices and played Magic: The Gathering,and community members learned about dementia and healthy choices for optimum brain aging. We find it exciting and reaffirming when the library becomes a purposeful destination squeezed into their busy lives. We invite all to visit the library, and if you do not find the book, movie, or activity that would make you put the library on your list of regular errand stops, let us know. We are always looking for a reason to improve our collections and branch out from Thursday evenings.
Sharing Our Blessings with the Community
Food for Fines
Traditionally, the Horicon Public Library takes the opportunity to share with our local food pantries the plentiful bounty our patrons provide. This year is no exception. The library will gladly accept any donations of nonperishable food items and sundries during the holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Year and ensure they are delivered to our outlets serving those in need.
For patrons who donate and have fines generated at our library, we will be happy to reduced fines by $1 for each item given. Also, our anonymous pay it forward procedure helps your fellow patrons reduce their fines, too.
Many times we are asked what type of goods are needed. Holiday fixings are always a sure bet. Please, your generous donation can help so many for so little. Thank you.
